New Mexico Congresswoman Deb Haaland visited some of the local people and areas impacted by the shutdown.

Thousands of people have been affected across the state.

Saturday, Rep. Haaland made several stops speaking with contractors, people worried about their healthcare and more.

She also visited Petroglyph National Park for a cleanup event in Albuquerque and was joined by Sen. Martin Heinrich, Mayor Tim Keller and Councilman Pat Davis.

“We just felt like we should give attention to our National Parks because they’re so important for about country,” said Haaland.

Sunday she’ll meet furloughed employee supervisors at Bow and Arrow Brewing Company at 1:15 p.m.
